Bristol Blogger Meetup

Hey guys!  So yesterday was a super fun day, it was the Bristol Blogger meetup organised by the wonderful Beauty Bird and Alessia!

Big shout out to Jenny from The Pulse of Fashion who was kind enough to drive us both down to Bristol (from Cardiff) :)  It was the funniest thing, we got to Bristol, parked up and being a super sweetie she'd made me some really cute cross earrings - so I put them on instantly!  And sitting in the passenger seat I pulled the sun visor down to check the earrings in the mirror and was greeted with this sign!































This seriously made me laugh, and every time I see it, I start laughing again!  Awesome.

So, we made our way over to Frankie and Bennies where we were meeting the rest of the people and we were one of the first there, despite Jenny missing our turn taking us about 20 miles off-route :p

It so lovely to finally meet Beauty Bird - we've been talking on twitter for so long, it was great to finally say Hi in real life!  Same goes for Hannah from Midnight Violets, we've been chatting loads so it was nice to finally meet her :)





























Jenny enjoying her amazing goodie bag!  Yeah, that brings me nicely to the goodie bags, oh, my, god were they amazing! I mean seriously, some stonking stuff in there!  The highlight literally and figuratively has to be the Benefit Fine One One (full size), felt so lucky to get one of those :)  n.b. I used it last night, and first impressions are good!

Here's some pics of all the things that were in the goodie bag :)

All the goodies!!!!





Some lovely skincare from Dr Organic - really looking forward to trying this!


 You cannot believe how good the Vanilla Biscuit bath and shower gel smells! NOM! And the lavender and Neroli candle - smells soooo good!




Some lovely other bits and bobs





























And all the smaller bits and sachets we had :)

All in all it was a great day - I had great fun hanging around and shopping with Hannah, Alison and Jade and the rest of the ladies at the meetup - massive thank you to Alessia and Beauty Bird for putting so much effort into this, it was really amazing :)

  11. Oh I am so jealous, I am dying to go to a bloger meet up. I live in Manchester and so far haven't heard of any up this way :( You got some fab stuff in your goody bag too. It must be really nice finally meeting up with people who actually feel like friends anyway. Glad you had such a lovely day.
